The performance of the 2018 Disneyland Resort All-American College Band began as most of these clinician performances do. The band played a quick version of When You Wish Upon a Star before student director Nathan Hatton introduced Bergeron. Throughout the performance, both the band and Wayne Bergeron soared. Bergeron’s trumpet playing was unreal as he took the band to new heights! The set included some fantastic jazz music, some of it Disney. As so often happens with these performances, it seemed like it was over entirely too quickly. Wayne Bergeron and the band was an incredibly fun set to watch and definitely will be remembered as a highlight of the summer!
